Kevin Durant Calls Chris Bosh ‘Punk,”Fake Tough’ After First-Quarter Altercation

Kevin Durant generally has nothing but positive things to say about all of his peers in the NBA, which makes the words that he had for Chris Bosh following the Thunder's 108-103 loss to Miami all the more striking.

Durant and Bosh were given double technicals after the two had an altercation incited by Bosh's hard foul on James Harden in the first quarter.

When later asked about Bosh, Durant called him a "punk," and said, "There are a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he's one of them," according to Daily Thunder.

This represents the first time that Oklahoma City star has had any notably harsh words for another NBA player, leading one to believe that either Durant was very upset in the wake of the close loss or that Bosh duly earned the comments with his actions on the court.

Durant had 33 points in the defeat, while Bosh, in his first appearance after a four-game absence with an ankle injury, had 20.
